Saudi German Health, one of the leading healthcare institutions in the Middle East and North Africa region, announced the provision of robotic surgery to replace the knee and hip joints, which is the first of its kind at the level of private health institutions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This qualitative step comes in line with the commitment of the Saudi German Health Company to raise health care standards in the Kingdom, achieve a positive impact on the lives of community members and alleviate their pain.
Total hip replacement surgery involves removing diseased osteoarthritis and cartilage and replacing them with an artificial hip implant called an implant designed like a healthy human joint. As for knee surgery, it is an operation that involves removing the affected part of the bone and cartilage to restore the functions of the damaged joints by replacing them with artificial or prosthetic joints.
Partial knee replacement is a recommended procedure for people with moderate knee deformity, degenerative arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis (PTP). It is also an alternative option for adults with osteoarthritis in one or two of the three compartments of the knee joint. Partial knee joint replacement surgery is limited to replacing the affected area of the joint with an artificial part, reducing the impact of the injury on the healthy parts of the bones and tissues.
This innovative technology provides surgeons with a three-dimensional model of each patient, and allows them to pre-plan the knee and hip joint replacement surgery according to a treatment program tailored to meet the needs and requirements of each patient. This methodology helps specialists and consultants focus on removing the affected part and preserving the healthy part of the bone.
Dr. said. Khaled Batterjee, Vice President of Saudi German Health, Head of the Orthopedic Department: “The hip replacement surgery is mainly directed to patients with joint injuries caused by degenerative or rheumatic infections; avascular necrosis; the lower end of the thigh bone, the upper end of the shin bone or shin bone, the patella or the patella; or functional deformity of the hip. Knee replacement surgery is recommended to relieve severe pain associated with movement or physical activity for people with osteoarthritis. We at Saudi German Health are proud of our pioneering role in enhancing the quality and efficiency of health care locally and regionally, and this step embodies our firm commitment to providing the best medical services to patients using the latest medical equipment and advanced facilities managed by a group of doctors, consultants and health care experts.”
Dr. Khaled Batterjee and his team successfully performed multiple surgeries at the Saudi German Hospital in Jeddah using this advanced technology. Minimally invasive, robotic surgeries lead to better medical outcomes and reduce the need for future consultations and reviews. It will be conducted by Dr. Khaled Batterjee and the orthopedic teams at the Saudi German Health perform this surgery for patients at the Saudi German Hospital, Jeddah.
Makarim Sobhi Batterjee, General President and Executive Vice Chairman of Saudi German Health, said: “We are proud to be the first private medical institution to offer robotic joint replacement surgery in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
